A highly watchable 70's Italian crime thriller.
7 January 2003 | by SorsimusSee all my reviews

Groovy soundtrack and no nonsense scriptwriting easily lift this one above the worst depths of Italian crime films (even if the plot is a rip off of D.O.A (1950 & 1988), or should I say Kazan's Panic in the Streets)(1950). Lots of authentic seventies scenery, interiors and cars never hurt any film, either! Bad acting, however, does just that, denying this flick a place in the genre pantheon helped by the gritty but somewhat unimaginative direction.

For fans of the genre, well worth the effort!

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
